Why not? In many cases we should use "just as" instead of the subject but IMO in some other cases "just like" may be a correct choice. Jusr check "like vs as"

Just like is slightly less efficient than like, but there is nothing grammatically incorrect with just like.

Off the top of my head, I can't think of any official GMAT SC questions that include "just like" in the correct answer, but there's no reason why "just like" would be automatically wrong. "Just like" appears in the incorrect answer of at least two official questions, but the use of the word "just" isn't the deciding factor -- in both examples, "just as" is in the correct answer instead of "just like." And "like" vs. "as" is a different issue entirely.

If you have a copy of the OG (basically any edition), check out question #52 in the diagnostic at the very beginning of the book, or check out this thread: https://gmatclub.com/forum/just-like-th ... 79021.html

It is used for emphasizing that something happens very quickly or easily. And often without much thought or analysis.

"just like that"

Hi,

How I would put it is that while it is awkward and I cannot remember a question that used it, "just like" shall never be a deal-breaker among the answer choices. The answer choices would generally test a more fundamental rule in the question and your eyes need to be elsewhere, on that more fundamental difference. Else, there is no end to such list of nuanced differences and trsut me, GMAT doesn't expect you to remember all.

Focus on the eight main rules together with the meaning. These alone (and only these) can get you to a high accuracy on GMAT SC.

All the best!
